I specifically asked about the cancellation policy and was told you could cancel up to 72 hours before the reservation. I asked "...and there are no penalties for cancelling?" and was told no. unfortunately, we did need to cancel and were charged a $20.00 fee. When I asked about it they sent me a copy of an email where it... More

This room was clean and tidy. A tad small but still nice and cozy. The highlight was the incredible breakfast. A feast of freshly baked treats. A must stay if you want an exceptional breakfast that has been cooked and prepared each morning.

Our room was small but very clean and very nicely provisioned and furnished. The management is excellent. The breakfast is better than average for a motel breakfast. The main drawbacks are the lack of space around the motel itself (no place to walk your dog but directly around the building) and the extremely busy Route 1 right out the front... More

I made a reservation in August for rooms in September. I cancelled the reservation 2 days later and the hotel, contrary to the policy stated on my reservation confirmation, charged me $40 service/processing fee.

My wife and I stayed one night at the Schooner Bay Motor Inn on our way up to visit Campobello Island. It's a short drive to downtown Camden for restaurants, shopping and seaside scenery. For a moderate price, this is an excellent motel providing a nice Maine feeling clean & crisp room with excellent service. The King Bed had a... More

The rooms may be a bit small, but they're clean. They offer free breakfast in the morning. Nothing fancy, but it was what I needed on the road and the price couldn't be better. And 3 big friendly dogs greeted me when I arrived.

This was a fantastic place. The room was clean and tidy. The bed comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding!! The breakfast selections were beautifully displayed by the lovely lady that made them. The vast majority of items were made from scratch--so very delicious.

Our stay here had been booked back in April, and for some unknown reason the motel staff cancelled our reservation without notifying us, so we were left without a room during a very busy weekend here. No help was offered in helping us find a room, even though paperwork was found showing our reservation had been made and a deposit... More
